Hawaii health exchange head to testify to Congress

Hawaii is one of 10 states on the hot seat for its troubled health exchange.

The Hawaii Health Connector’s interim director, Tom Matsuda, will head to Washington next week.

Matsuda has been called to Congress to testify about the problems faced by the marketplace.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee says the states were flagged because security testing was inadequate before the states connected to a federal database.

There were 35 states that were deemed a high risk, and 10 states were considered a moderate risk.

Republican Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, of California, says the personal information of Americans who signed up for health insurance through the exchanges was at risk.
